“Great place, especially if you have dogs!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

A great "dog-friendly" place to stay with no size restrictions on dogs like most other hotels/motels in the area! The owners are very friendly and have great customer service. It's not somewhere you'd stay if you plan on spending all your time in your room, but it's a great place to eat and sleep amidst days spent at the beach or wherever!

If you need a roof over your head and a "clean enough" room (just don't look under the beds or you might find used food, random flip flops and spider heaven) then this will get the job done.
It didn't cost and arm and a leg and it was reasonable price.The kitchen was very handy and quite fully stocked. Not sure about the continental breakfast as we never saw it or paper, so maybe confirm that part. Staff was friendly when we checked in, and solved a lost reservation issue pretty quickly. (although we had called twice to confirm before travelling) Good and bad, but as the title said "it got the job done" and we had fun as a family.

Room Tip: The cabins are pretty old but very private, handy if you have kids or a pet.

Clean rooms and friendly staff. They are pet friendly as well! A bit dated and our room had a smoky smell. Not sure if they still alow smoking. Next time I would ask for a non-smoking room.
Over all we had a pleasant stay!

This hotel is older and shows it's age. The rooms are larger and you can pay a little extra and have a room with a kitchenette. The linen was clean and the room had no smells that some older motels have. I do not think they have enough time to give the room a thorough cleaning like dusty the Kleenex holder and the electric base heater in the bathroom. There was a continental breakfast but it was not very appealing because of the area it was laid out in. The lady manager was friendly at check in and you could see her working around the place but again I think she had to much to do to make sure everything is done up to par by her staff.

Room Tip: The rooms on the floor are very quiet.

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room, huge! with flat screen tv, frig, microwave and general cleanliness. We had just spent $224 for a very tiny room at Friday Harbor (Earthbox Inn) and this was less than half that.

Room Tip: glad we got a ground floor room as we are getting old and moving a cooler and suitcases up the stair...

Large, clean old fashioned room. Quiet except for early am ambulance visit.
I was working in Parksville during the Summer Season so accommodation can be pricey and tight but they had rooms.
Located on the Strip with Timmys across the road, two restaurants next door ( The takeout Fusion food was excellent, inexpensive and fast)
Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Upstairs toward the back is quietest, good cross breeze in warm weather
